Lusk's Lock and Bowman's Cemetery Tour-Part 1

This is every one at Bowman's Cemetery, though I have jumped ahead. We had a great group tonight that was almost the perfect size. I really enjoyed taking them around the area and showing them some of the haunted aspects of Columbiana County.

These are my junior team members, Sammi and Sarah. They were in charge of taking pictures on this tour. Needless to say they did a great job. On October 3, Sammi is headed to PA for a meeting with Kris, Tango, and Steve of Ghost Hunters!! She swears to take lots of pictures and share her story when she returns!
Here is a small group having an EVP session at the edge of the Canal.
Sammi, Dave, and Will using their recorders. Dave is a huge paranormal fan in the county and has much of his own equipment, which he brings to every tour. He is fast becoming a great ghost hunter. Will just started about two months ago. He is the one who provoked Marie a little at Thompson Park and got the great pictures!
I am calling this picture "An Orb Between Two Ghost Hunters." This was taken as we walked down into the canal.
Lusk's Lock is, architecturally, one of the most beautiful of all the Locks for the Sandy and Beaver Canal System. It is Lock Number 27. On the upper side of the lock on the inside is a plaque that has the names of the engineer and builders. The engineer is none other than Edward Gill, Gretchen's father of Gretchen's Lock.
We make our way through the lock slowly as the flowers and weeds are very high. There is no water in this lock any longer. Just the fallen tree, and at this time, us.
Dave makes his way along the trail enduring the heat with everyone else. Ghost hunters know no bounds!
The walls of the lock are very high (at least 20 feet) and many of the ghost hunters here look up in awe, feeling how small they are and how big Lusk's Lock really is.
We had two EVP sessions. They were mostly quiet, though we did get two. One said "Can you hear me?" and the other said one of our guest ghost hunters name "Heidie". She handled that quite well actually. I was impressed.
Here we are leaving for our next adventure-Bowman's Cemetery. At this point we don't know what awaits us, but be are all eager to find out!
